ITC Judge Says Samsung Infringed Apple’s Text-Selection Patent

Apple has gone one for two in another Samsung patent spat being reviewed by the International Trade Commission. According to a March 26 preliminary decision that was kept confidential until late Thursday, ITC Judge Thomas Pender has determined that Samsung infringed Apple’s patent on text selection on mobile devices, but did not infringe a second patent which allows a device to detect when something has been plugged into its headphone jack. The full commission must now review Pender’s decision. If it upholds it, Samsung could face an importation ban on infringing devices.
